too bad this was the last seen of Gordon
1 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Once I figured out that it was Philip Jackson playing Gordon - he plays Inspector Japp in Poirot with David Suchet - it made watching him in LOTSW so much more fun. I loved his mum, too. This episode showed the Trio at their best. Loved it, as I do the vast majority of what I've seen of this series so far. Saturday evenings are not complete without this easy-going, enjoyable show. The actors look like 'real' people, and the countryside shots are heavenly. I get a lot of 'laughter therapy' from the scrapes and adventures that Compo, Clegg, and Foggy find themselves in.

FYI: It was Paul Luty as Big Malcolm who appeared in 'The Man From Oswestry' in Foggy's first episode, not Big Eric.
